About

Tech Policy Press is a nonprofit media and community venture intended to provoke new ideas, debate and discussion at the intersection of technology and democracy. We publish opinion and analysis.

At a time of great challenge to democracies globally, we seek to advance a pro-democracy movement in tech and tech policy.

Our key areas of concern include:

  • Concentrations of power: the role and interaction of tech platforms, governments and the media and the future of the public sphere;
  • Geopolitics of technology: how nation states approach technology in the pursuit of advantage;
  • Technology and the economy: the relationship between markets, business, and labor;
  • Racism, bigotry, violence & oppression: how tech exacerbates or solves such challenges;
  • Ethics of Technology: how technology should be viewed alongside existing democratic ethos, especially with regard to privacy, surveillance and personal freedoms;
  • Election integrity & participation: mechanisms of democracy, problems such as disinformation and how citizens come to consensus. 

Tech Policy Press is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Presently, it is funded primarily through contributions from its founders- Justin Hendrix and Bryan Jones- as well as small donations from individuals.

In 2022, Justin is a Democracy Fellow at the Emerson Collective, which supports his effort to advance Tech Policy Press.
